Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather Jr. were supposed to be the center of attention at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Thursday, but it was younger brother Jake Paul that stole the show.
Bedlam erupted after Jake Paul snatched Mayweather’s baseball hat and ran off with it following the press conference, with Floyd issuing death threats and reportedly landing several punches on the 24-year-old.

Logan warned Jake not to antagonize Floyd but isn’t mad that his younger brother stole the limelight, admitting that Jake is ‘kind of doing my job for me’.
“It’s always a f*cking spectacle with that kid,” Logan said of his little brother (h/t MMA Junkie). “Yeah, he told me he was gonna do it. I told him not to. This sh*t is so personal. This sh*t is so f*cking personal. I thought this sh*t was gonna be kind of cute, go and put on a good show. It’s gonna be a f*cking fight, bro. It’s gonna be a war. Floyd did look pretty emotional. He was angry. He can act cool all he wants on stage, but I think my brother’s kind of doing my job for me.”
Mayweather vs, Paul will take place next month, June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
